Weak Soil Composition

Both natural and man-made causes can lead to weak soils beneath your home.  The original soil composition may have included loosely-packed materials that were not packed well before construction, or nearby drilling or excavation may have resulted in compromised soil quality.  Regardless of the cause, weak soils generally result in subsidence, which often appears as the gradual sinking or “caving in” of an area of land.  Left unchecked, subsidence near your home can have a negative impact on your home’s foundation.

Symptoms

  • Subsidence issues around the house
